Cookie Monster

I've been craving cookies lately. And on Tuesday night (a.k.a. Barack Obama night), I realized I had an unopened bag of vegan white chocolate chips lurking in my pantry. I also realized that the next day (Wednesday) was my co-worker Mary's birthday. So I made a quick run to Kroger for macadamia nuts. An hour later, I was licking the bowl while these tasty Vegan White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies baked in the oven:

Yum, yum! White chocolate macadamia cookies were always my fave in my pre-vegan days. But I haven't been able to find cruelty-free white chocolate around here. Thankfully, my super-cool dad placed an order from Vegan Essentials for these chocolate chips and some Teese last month.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with them at first, so I stored them away for a rainy day. Then it hit me — I must use my chips for cookies! I used the Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance, but subbed 1 cup of white chocolate chips for the regular semi-sweet chips. And I also folded in 1/2 cup of chopped macadamia nuts. And as usual, I used whole wheat pastry flour in place of the all-purpose.

I brought a batch to work for Mary's birthday and I still have a secret stash at home that I'm working my way through. That recipe makes a crap ton of cookies!

Note to testers: I'm still off-line at home. Grrr! I've tried using different modems and all kinds of stuff. But nothing seems to work. My dad says the computer that I'm borrowing from him may have something wrong with it that's preventing me from being able to connect to the internet. I'm really ready to get back to posting recipes on the tester site! Hopefully, it'll be resolved soon. I will keep ya'll posted.

COOKIES!! I am such a cookie monster, it's insane, lol.

Your rendition of the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookie (also a fave of mine prevegan days) looks really good!

There is a real good recipe for these type of cookies in Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan by Dreena Burton.

Have a great weekend!

Those look phenomenal. They look like the slightly undercooked Subway cookies that I used to love in my pre-vegan days. I'm gonna have to find some vegan white chocolate chips and go to town making some!

Yum, those look delicious . . . Macadamia and white chocolate chip was always my favorite kind of "mall" cookie, so I need to hunt down some white choc. chips.
